Guide Review - Play The Real-Life Money Game With Your Teen
Written by a parent, tested on teenagers, Play the Real-Life Money Game With Your Teen is an easy and fun approach to building your teen's financial skills, resolving conflict around money issues, and helping your son or daughter become a financially responsible adult.

Denise's Thoughts: I enjoyed the book and do feel it teaches very important financial independence skills. Your teenager can benefit from it. But I do find it very involved in the fact that it is an active type of approach that requires a time commitment and organizational skills to pull off. Yes, I feel it is worth the time spent, but know this before buying the book.
